Pollinator Day Event at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.

Pollinator Day was an interactive, playful and informative day packed with opportunities to find out more about the vital role pollinators play across the globe. Photography can capture the wonder and joy of discovery and Kew Gardens certainly provided a day of knowledge through play and interaction with one of our most important insects, the Bee.

Charity schools event shot for the Brakes Group in Mile End

'Science Fundamentals', a fun and interesting charity event organised in collaboration with the Science Museum and attended by Brakes Group CEO, Andrew Bush. I had fun taking photographs of the dynamic and fun packed day!

Interior/Editorial shoot for Experience Labs

Long day at the offices of Experience Labs, a leading usability and research testing facility based in Holborn.  The brief was to represent the office work space interior and to produce photographs showcasing the environment and it’s staff through various working scenarios.

Photoshoot for the CQI magazine at Bombardier train factory, Derby, today...

Interesting industrial environment to photograph in today for a magazine editorial…pity that all but one of the factory workforce was on holiday! Luckily I had my management team to sit for their portraits in the factory location.

Backplate retouching shot over the weekend for new sports related project

This is my first backplate test shot for a new sports related photographic project. I am looking for candidates to take part in studio sessions in order to comp and edit into the shot using Photoshop. This was taken at St Annes Hospital in Haringey in the disused part that has recently been earmarked for development...so we have more ugly and boring houses to look forward to that will inevitably replace the late Victorian buildings.

Corporate Portraiture at Keningtons Chartered Surveyors

Headshots taken at Keningtons Chartered Surveyors using my new Grey Lastolite collapsible background...first thoughts on this background is the convenience, but slightly surprised at the moire pattern I encountered from it. Not much of a retouch but a shock nonetheless from an expensive piece of photographic kit!

Photoshoot at the Brook Surgery at Golders Green

Headshots taken at the Brook Surgery at Golders Green, commissioned in order to publicise their relocation to new offices. Lesson learned: always check your bag before the photoshoot for compact flash cards as I left mine behind at the studio and had to shoot on a 1 gig card, JPGS and not Raw, to my horror I found that no one sells CF cards on the high street anymore!

Charity Event Photo-Shoot for Chivas Brothers in Bishops Park, Fulham

A delightful day in Bishops Park with the guys from Chivas Brothers, Pernod Ricard for their annual community event, this years theme: 'convivial spaces'...shame the weather was not being convivial!

Thank you to the Chivas Brothers task force for being up for having their photographs taken in order to highlight the charity work at this event in Bishops Park, Fulham.
